So close to real
1 February 2018 | by See all my reviews

For those who panned this movie either through ignorance of Autism and it's many faces or those who "used to live" with someone dealing with Autism, it is much different when you have a family member that deals with this struggle day in and day out. My granddaughter whom I will only identity by her nickname Yaya is a hazel eyed angel whose emotions can turn on a dime, much like Dakota Fanning portrayed as 20 something Wendy who goes through the trials and tribulations of submitting a script for a Star Trek movie. It was wonderfully directed with the characterizations of a high functioning Autistic person and those closely assimilated into her life, those expecting Oscar winning performances may be a bit disillusioned yet this movie is pretty much spot on, in the facing of adversity, the happiness an Autistic person experiences yet somehow gets their signals mixed up and can only relate it via calmness and acceptability of the given situation. Yaya is not quite at the level of Wendy and may never be, that is the fear of my daughter, her husband and myself. It is a movie of love, understanding and compassion and more importantly the depiction of a young person attempting to bravely navigate a foreign world such as crew members of the of the Star Fleet ship the Enterprise would themselves. It is a vehicle that spotlights Autism, the love and fears of those involved and the hope that our own crewmember will one day find her own way in this complex world of aliens.
